Registered Dental Assistant
I love being part of our team, working together to provide the best, most gentle care to our patients. Our patients know and understand our commitment to their oral health and they come in excited to show us the improvements they’ve made since their last appointment. It’s a good feeling to know that we are able to help such wonderful people. As lead Dental Assistant, my work is to provide oversight, leadership and mentorship to my fellow dental assistants and to assist in the efficiency and functionality of the practice to reach the goals set forth by the doctors. I also take x-rays, perform coronal polishing, schedule appointments and input daily notes.
In my personal life you’ll find me with my family. In addition to my wonderful husband, I have three incredible children (Marcus, Aaron, and daughter Taylor who is attending DelMar College to become a Surgical Technician).
Registered Dental Assistant / Front Desk
It’s difficult for me to pinpoint what I like most about my job. I love our doctors and the team, I am happy that we’re able to provide such excellent care, and our patients are incredible! Really, my workday is always interesting and wonderful, which is not true for many people. I’m very lucky. Among my duties here, I assist with caring for our patients, sterilize and disinfect our treatment areas and equipment, schedule and confirm appointments, and verify insurance.
In my personal life, I am very involved with my church. I love spending time with my family, being in the outdoors, and reading.
I love the social aspects of my work, getting to interact with our patients, knowing that we’re helping them with both their oral and overall health, as well as improving their smile and self-confidence. Our team here is amazing, each so good at their job and willing to pitch in when needed, and their skills with our patients are truly impressive. Each team member likes what they do and it shows. As the office manager, my primary duty is to make everything simple, efficient, and pleasant for our patients, our team members, and our doctors. I oversee everything from finances and insurance to phone calls and appointments.
In other words, I tend to be busy, whether here in the office or one my days off. My husband Herman and I have two children Isaac (Coach Rodriguez in Taft) and Lyndsie (attorney for Nueces Co.). I have a pet dog named Belo and two grand cats, Puss & Boots and Lilith, along with a pug named Zeke. My family has been involved in our community all our lives.
Being part of a team that is united in our commitment to delivering excellent care for our patients means I love my job. Not only are my fellow team members incredible at what they do, but our doctors are so skilled and gentle when they work with our patients, as well. And our patients really like to come see us: they tell us so! My job duties are concentrated on disinfecting and sterilizing our instruments, equipment, and the entire treatment area once a patient is finished with their appointment.
As for my personal life, I enjoy staying active and spending time with my family. I also play the guitar and the piano and am a regular volunteer with my church, too.
Registered Dental Assistant / Scheduling Coordinator
I enjoy playing a role in the dental health of our patients and love it when we have time to socialize. Because we are a family-oriented practice, I’ve been able to watch our patients’ families grow over the years, and that’s very rewarding to see, especially when a parent trusts us and brings their child to us for their first dental visit! Our team here is truly amazing and our doctors are the best. My work involves everything from assisting our doctors as they care for our patients to taking X-rays and charting. I also schedule and confirm appointments, verify dental insurance, and submit insurance claims.
I am proud to be a part of a team that changes patients’ lives in a positive way. Our team and doctors all work towards a common goal of providing the best dental care to our patients. Our patients will always walk into a caring and friendly environment.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 20 years. We have three wonderful boys. I am very proud of them. During the week after work, I am involved in a lady’s bible study group. On the weekends, my husband and I enjoy going to the beach. I also enjoy reading, cooking, and keeping up with current events. During football season, I enjoy cheering for the New Orleans Saints.
Registered Dental Assistant
As a dental assistant, I work one-on-one with each patient to help improve their oral health and provide a comfortable dental experience. It is very gratifying to see the end results of a completed treatment, as well as the satisfaction of our patients with the care they’ve received. One of the best parts of working here is that it’s truly a family atmosphere. Our doctors and team work very well together to meet our patients’ dental needs.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three children. I also enjoy cooking and baking for family and friends.
